In the video Kind of Blue the director, Cecilia Bertoni, creates portraits exploring her fellow performers as people without a role, just as themselves. In a circular narrative structure, five stories follow one another, linked by an intimacy that manifests itself through the environments, objects and the everyday clothes of these same performers. The director explores their physical and mental obsessions and their relationship to the creative act.
The bathrooms of their own homes, of a hotel or a dilapidated building, become the places in which their secrets, their follies and their disappointments become explicit, while a kitchen becomes the nerve centre of the creation, but also the prelude and the epilogue of an endless wait. A voice offstage, like an absent observer of the action, tells its own stories which are only seemingly arbitrary.
